I'm absolutely delighted that this is the most detailed model of the Wombat in this scale and the kit meets a very important gap in the Winter of '79 armoury, providing plenty of punch to rebel and government forces alike. The conversion kit is 7.50 Euros but the Land Rover must be purchased separately.
Hopefully either Rolf at RH Models or Matt at Elhiem will produce crew figures.
I like the look of that Ferret in the background.ReplyDelete
I have two Ferrets from S&S Models so deliberately developed a blind spot. Going to see if the Wombat conversion fits an S&S LWB.ReplyDelete
Just got my copy of Wargames Illustrated and Winter of 79 is going to be my game project of 2016.ReplyDelete
Great stuff Ewan!Delete
It was always hit-or miss whether the lannie would re-start after the wombat fired! Success-rate was about 60/40, but it got to the point where on firepower demo's involving VIP's, the crew would drive-up, fire the beast and then join in the rest of the attack as infantry, leaving the removal of the lannie until the bigwigs had retired to their G&T tents!ReplyDelete
